14 Shot Outside Party In Southern California

UPDATE 5:47 p.m.: (AP) — Attackers have wounded 14 people, two critically, in a shooting after a party in California's Central Valley.

It happened shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday in Bakersfield.

Kern County Sheriff's spokesman Ray Pruitt tells KNX-AM radio that homeowners allowed their daughter to host the party. She promoted it on social media and about 150 people arrived — many uninvited.

The parents broke up the party and the visitors — mainly 15- to 18-year-olds — streamed into the front yard and street.

Pruitt says that's when three people came up the street and opened fire on the crowd. At least one person reportedly fired back.

People were hit in the arms, legs and chest. The critically injured are expected to survive.

Authorities say the attack may have been gang-related.
